The South Campus

Head-Royce School

After 10+ years, hundreds of donations, and tireless hours by people both within and outside of the community, we finally broke ground on the South Campus. Thank you to everyone for your commitment, dedication, patience, and ongoing support. Current and former students, parents, staff, trustees, school heads, and even Tuffy helped us mark the day with shovels in the dirt!

Not Just a School in Oakland, but an Oakland School

Increased Access

Expanding our campus footprint allows Head-Royce to expand student enrollment, increasing access to Head-Royce School for students of diverse backgrounds and talents. Adding 344 students helps fund a significant number of new scholarships.

Expanded Offerings

A larger student body in the Upper School expands academic course offerings, student clubs, social life, athletic excellence, and student leadership opportunities for all of our 9-12 students. Year-round students, including Heads Up and Summer Program, will also enjoy the new campus.

Student drop-offs and pick-ups will take place at the South Campus Welcome Center, alleviating traffic congestion on Lincoln Avenue.
